Simple python solution

    The tricky part is how to prevent double counting, which occurs if we simply add the duration to the total poisoned time. To avoid this, one can use a flag that indicates when the poisoned time ends. Using this flag, we can calculate and subtract the double-counted time properly.

    def findPosisonedDuration(self, timeSeries, duration):
        :type timeSeries: List[int]
        :type duration: int
        :rtype: int
        p_time = 0
        p_end = 0
        for i in xrange(len(timeSeries)):
            p_time += duration - max(0, p_end - timeSeries[i])
            p_end = timeSeries[i] + duration
        return p_time
